Hey there, thanks for getting back to me, doing jobs on your own instead of "for the man" is a lot harder, I guess that's why you get paid more:) anyway, learning lots and meeting a lot of very cool people. one lady in pdx here replied to me and actually came over and showed me how to do word index and mini trans. I knew it was super easy, I guess I just needed a little help, anyway, thanks again!! How you doing down there?
I would have had a chance to meet you and buy you dinner! Oh, well, maybe next time when you get a long job you can come out. I am glad it worked out. If you get any non-realtime jobs, I am your guy (s). I can still give them a final at the end of the day, though. Carol will work on it while I am on the job (s)
I heard from Carol that the woman she referred you to backed out of the job. Sorry to hear about that. What happened there, anyway? Hopefully, one of the other names she gave you worked out. I wish I did realtime, but I don't. So I can't help you personally. I actually don't even do any computer work. The lady you spoke to, Carol, does all my scoping and production work. She has only worked for me for 30 years, so we are still getting to know each other (g). The rates are pretty high here compared to other parts of the country, so I suppose it is difficult to cover a realtime job from out of state. I guess I didn't get involved in your negotiations, so I don't know what percentage or charges you were doing. I hope Carol was helpful, though, in helping you find someone. Jim Otterson is who I usually recommend for realtime, but he said he doesn't do livenote for some reason. Good luck! I hope everything works out for you.
Audra: If you still need help, let me know. I handle mainly realtime (Livenote, Bridge, etc.) Boulder's about 30 minutes from Denver. Sounds interesting. I do a lot of med mal and have done some patent litigation, mainly on heart defibrillators, though.
